Mount Palomar Winery is celebrating 48 years of history in Temecula wine country. The first vineyards at Mount Palomar were planted in 1969, making us the second oldest winery in the valley. We have been pioneers in wine country ever since - planting Temecula's first Sangiovese grapes, opening the first wine tasting cave, and starting the oldest outdoor Sherry Solera in the United States.

Our July wine club shipment was released on July 23rd, 2017, and it included four new wine releases: Our 2013 Castelletto Sangiovese, 2014 Castelletto Dolcetto, 2014 Castelletto Cortese, and 2015 Muscato di Amore.
Mount Palomar was the first grower of Sangiovese in the Temecula Valley and has planted seven unique clones. The 2013 Sangiovese is very aromatic with honey, lily, carnation, all spice and chocolate. The wine is medium bodied with a bright garnet color. The tastes are complex with strawberry, boysenberry, plum, Bartlett pear, cloves, and pipe tobacco. This wine is best if allowed to breathe before serving. It pairs well with red meat, BBQ and red sauces.
Dolcetto is not commonly grown in California and when it is it usually produced in a soft light style. We create a big bold red in the Superiore style with firm tannin structure which has become very popular at Mount Palomar. The nose is of blackberry, pomegranate, cherimoya, fuji apple, fennel, and sweet spice. The taste is bright but complex with sour cherry, green apple, cranberry, and dark plum. The wine is still young and will benefit from continued again and is best if allowed to breathe before serving.
This is a wine club exclusive, only available to wine club members in good standing. If you'd like to try our 2014 Castelletto Dolcetto, you can click here to join the wine club online.
A rare Italian varietal in California, Cortese is of Mount Palomar’s own clone which is produced from the Mother Block. This dry white wine has heady scents of pear, lychee, almond and citrus blossom. The mouth feel is smooth and creamy with tastes of pear, coconut and lemoncello. Our Cortese is great to be enjoyed by itself or with seafood, poultry and light pork dishes.
This blend of Muscat varietals is bright with scents of honeysuckle, lychee and papaya. Lightly sweet, this wine is refreshing with tastes of Mandarin Orange, papaya, mango, Key Lime and honey. This wine pairs well with poultry, pork, white fish and Asian cuisine.
